‘SPIDER-PIG’

From: The Simpsons Movie (2007)

Though the lyrics are only 25 words long – “Spider-Pig, Spider-Pig / Does whatever a Spider-Pig does / Can he swing from a web? / No, he can't, he's a pig / Look out, he is a Spider-Pig!” – the 14th track of The Simpsons Movie: The Music soundtrack album has 12 – count ‘em – lyricists credited, including James L. Brooks and Matt Groening. Hans Zimmer originally put together a choral version of the porcine piss-take as a joke before producers insisted it featured in the actual film. It went on to enjoy a small blast of radio play after it hit number 23 in the UK Singles Chart and drove several thousand listeners up the wall (where they probably left muddy footprints).

I felt that The Karate Kid and TBOTRK were similar to both of those -- though they are undoubtedly huge earworms -- so if I get the time I'll add them on Thursday (I'm away today). As for Cap, I wanted something new on the list, as a lot of it was very nostalgic (ironic, considering the song's nature...) More

Oompa Loompas predicted the fake tan epidemic way back in 1971, who knew? I'm more partial to Underground from Labyrinth myself with the gospel choir that kicks in midway through, one of David Bowie's forgotten songs that should have been a bigger hit in 1986. More
